About Write for Kindness
Write for Kindness is a national creative-writing competition organised by the Singapore Kindness Movement (SKM), with the Singapore Book Council as our programme partner. It is a platform for secondary, junior college, centralised institute, madrasah and international school students to promote kindness to the younger audience by creating age-appropriate and culturally relevant children’s stories, through short stories, poetry, illustrations and songs.
The competition aims to promote:
- the value of kindness through stories and poems which focus on the theme ‘Kindness Starts Small’
- the importance of stories and poems to positively impact pre-school children in their character development
- story and poetry as creative means of expressing cultural values
- team work among students who work together on the stories, poems and illustrations for preschool children
